Joint Issues

Whether it frozen shoulder or knee pain, an issue in any joint can have a significant impact on your life. The trick is to eliminate pain before you start rehabilitating a given joint.

Acupuncture is an excellent first line therapy because it:

  • Relieves inflammation
  • Eliminates pain
  • Relaxes muscles to support normal range of motion
  • Improves blood flow to accelerate the healing process.

Following are list of specific conditions that we commonly treat in our office:

  • Frozen shoulder
  • Shoulder pain
  • Elbow: lateral & medial epicondylitis (aka golfer’s or tennis elbow)
  • Knee: chondromalacia, patellar tendonitis
  • Hip pain, including sciatica
  • Wrist & ankle: carpal tunnel/tarsal tunnel syndrome

For additional conditions we treat see osteoarthritis and foot & ankle.

Already getting physical therapy? That’s great! We can easily develop an acupuncture program that dovetails into your existing rehabilitation program.
